They should honor him by plastering the cartoons everywhere

The copper who slotted the oik should be honoured rather than the victim IMO.

There are 2 million indigenous Moslems in Thailand and 2 million immigrant Moslems. The problems in the extreme south aren't really a religious issue, more a separatist issue, same as N. Ireland.

You do understand Reuters is viewed as supportive of the centre right wing - conspiracy allegations are so boring. Very likely at the time of the initial report Reuters were not aware the man had actually been decapitated. Later Reuter's reports do refer to the decapitation e.g.

I live within earshot of 2 mosques and see no animosity locally. They have integrated seamlessly.

Actually the 2015 Thai census showed a population of 2.8 million Thai Muslim citizens, nearly all being Sunni.

As a comparison to France, the Thai State supports funding for the maintenance of mosques and contributes 50% of the funds if the local community raised 50% of the cost of a new build. Additionally there is a Thai Muslim advisor, representing all Thai Muslims, to the Deleted. As you say Thailand, excepting the deep South conflict due to non representation in the past, has done a good job with integration - any lessons to be learnt for France? Perhaps very difficult due to the Wahabi influence which has taken a strong hold within some French Muslim groups. France has commenced deportation of Salafi Imams, but how do French authorities transition the resultant resentment?

Yes, and my point was that the headline used in the initial TVF report always was wrong, because the teacher was beheaded, and should have been reported like that.

Reuters is often the first news media to break stories on the media. A lot of their income is from syndication, so they need to be quick.

 

So they will have reported what they had been told at the time. And if the initial press release said that a teacher had died in a knife attack, then that is what they would have said. And let's face it, it wasn't wholly inaccurate was it.

It appears you forgot to preface that comment with the word "Some of..."

 

The again, maybe you are a broad brush style painter?

As your specialty is "knowledge of France, its customs and traditions", can I allow myself a contribution to expand your knowledge:

I quote excerpts from your very constructive post:

"In comparison with France, the Thai state supports the financing of the maintenance of mosques and contributes 50% of the funds if the local community has raised 50% of the cost of a new construction
  Thailand has done a good job on integration - lessons for France? "

My right to express myself:

In comparison with Thailand, foreigners in France benefit from multiple aids, ranging from housing, family allowance, social protection, free canteens for children, free schools, various vouchers, reimbursement of their Arab festivals. , and I forget some, because the list is very long.
All these advantages without working.
As an option, France provides very substantial assistance in the construction of schools, hospitals, wells ... to countries which have requested their independence for more than 60 years.
But yes, France has done a "good" job in terms of integration.
The immigrants brought, in this country, only violence, incivility, non respect of the values, of the laws specific to France.
Lessons to be learned for Thailand ?????

 

I do wish some members, including yourself, cease making false assertions regards my self. I have never posted or insinuated my specialty is "knowledge of France, its customs and traditions". If you are using sarcasm, likely, I'll remind you 'sarcasm is the lowest form of wit'.

 

Sure there are members of the French Muslim community who subscribe to and act upon Salafi ideology, do they represent the majority? No, not even close, so why express vilification against all Muslims, it is totally unproductive, as counter terrorism professionals inform.

 

You well know France, in a number of instances did a terrible job of transitioning ex colonies to independence; immediately coming to mind are Vietnam, Syria and Algeria. To infer a country can never learn from another, is extreme hubris. IMO what does not help France is the extremist hatred  represented by some French member posts on this forum.

If they want to be seperate from Thailand then why don't they go where things please them.... They are in Thailand, WHY should they expect Thailand to give them their land for their own selfish religious reasons?????????

<SNIP>

It's Off Topic so don't know if Mods will permit to address countering lack of factual info.

 

Thai Muslims have been resident nationals for centuries. BTW, the deep South provinces were transferred to Thailand, against the will of the locals, by the British to get then Siam onboard to assist with stopping French influence in the region: refer....

The murdered French teacher will get his nation's highest honor.

 

Meanwhile, his murderer has already obtained his extreme religious belief's highest honor of martyrdom.
